Lancashire Peer & Self-Advocacy Services (CLASS)
What we do
CLASS delivers Peer and Self-Advocacy services to support people in Lancashire who use mental health services.
Self-advocacy gives people a voice and a real say in the way the services and support they want and need are designed and delivered.
Peer support provides opportunities for people with shared or similar experiences to come together and support each other.
CLASS works in partnership with the people who attend sessions allowing them to shape the way that the service supports them in the community by:
- Facilitating peer and self-advocacy meetings in local areas around Lancashire
- Working together to improve services
- Raising awareness about mental health needs across Lancashire
- Supporting the Lancashire Wellbeing Partnership to meet and take forward agreed actions that raise awareness and ensure people’s voices are heard.
The service is open to anyone 18+ living in Lancashire and we would love for more people to get involved. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never participated in self or peer advocacy before, your experiences will add value to the work we do. And, if you aren’t comfortable attending meetings or saying how you feel, don’t worry, we can help you develop the skills and confidence you need to do both.
